's meeting in montana. joining us from big sky montana is mike emanuel. good morning early to you. how did this town hall meeting go yesterday? spent it was pretty good, alysin president obama today will be parked tourist in chief taking his family to yellowstone park, doing another town hall event in grand junction, colorado. the president yesterday was in belgrade, montana, the home state of max baucus was in the middle of healthcare reform negotiations as chairman of the senate finance committee. the pitching montana is with healthcare reform. insurers would not be able to drop you if you become seriously ill. mr. obama's town hall and montana had a very campaign to appeal there was thought president obama might get feisty questions from people opposed to healthcare reform the present mostly softball questions and made reference to some of the fireworks we have seen on the news this summer with members of congress singles events. what's take a listen. st. ann out there has been a lot of attention paid to some of the town hall meetings on time around the country, especially when tepper's
with montana democrats. and now the denver post one of the largest papers in the mountain region is calling for a public option, saying it's the only way to bring about real reform. it it's the best way to slow escalating health care costs and expand access to quality care. the country ultimately will lose if the public option vanishes because of the democratic's best effort to reform health care. what's going on with max baucus. >> i think we'll feel the impact of that editorial, we have got a lot of congressional elections here that are going to be contested. congressman john salazar is up for a tough election. becky mary up for a tough election and i think you'll see the republican editorial peace sup for debate. they have said that they conc t conceptually support a public option. but you never know what's going to happen in the negotiation. in relation to max baucus, a new poll came out showing that the democrats in montana, quite a small state are extremely unhappy with baucus on the issue of health care and baucus who said he strongly supports a public option, but has subsequently -
slipping, president obama hit the road again this time in belgrade, montana. the crowd was much friendlier than those rowdy town halls we have seen, but the president finally did get a couple of questions that were not complete softballs. chuck todd joins us in a moment from montana. plus, you know those end of life counsel prognosis visions in the health care bills which republicans, like sarah palin, have distorted into death panels? it turns out republicans were actually for end of life counseling before they were against it. that's just one of the inconsistencies we'll discuss with republican john culbertsoc. >> and how far has he fallen? there is a report that john edwards is about to finally admit he is the father of his mistress's child? where would he be if edwards had not been so wisely dejected by wise democratic voters last year. >> and bill clinton has some tough words on the networks crowd on don't ask don't tell. >> and what does it mean to be palinized? ask one who says it could easily happen to her. the definition coming up on the hardball side show. >>> first president oba
. this is a live picture of air force one about to depart montana for grand junction, colorado. in colorado that is where he is going to be holding a townhall meeting, a city providing medical care at a third of the cost of other cities. hundreds of people are expected at the event and to make their voices heard in demonstrations planned outside. what does the president plan to focus on in today's townhall? >> strategy has been tapping into anger against the insurance companies. yesterday he was on patients who get dropped from coverage. today it's going to be people who has insurance that gets hit by a cap on benefits and large out of pocket fees. introducing him is nathan wilkes. he has been paying $25,000 in out of pocket fees. he is battling over a benefits cap, as well. the white house says the president will continue to hold these townhall regularly this month. >> julie: what can we expect from the crowd, especially from the demonstrators. some of these have gotten pretty heated? >> the audience might be okay with shouting down their congressman but they have taken a different tone wi
with the benefits or large out of pocket fees. now, mr. obama is on a four-day western trip. first up, in montana where yesterday he focused on patients who get dropped by their insurance companies in today's web address. the president says he realizes there's skepticism about his proposal. especially at a time of economic upheaval, but he asked for a discussion where we lower our voices. his town halls lacked the raucous crowds that some congressional democrats have faced, but he did take a couple of tough questions yesterday. >> and that's all we get is bull. you can't tell us how you're going to pay for this. you're saving here, you're saving over there, you're going to take a little money here, a little money there, but you have no money. >> you're absolutely right. that i can't cover another 46 million people for free. you're right. >> even some republicans are facing confrontation al crowds in their towns. senator chuck grassley is coming to the table with democrats. a larger theme in many of these forums is mistrust of big government solutions and republicans are hammering that message. >>
, miley cyrus, let's face it, she's a role model out there, hannah montana. well, she's appearing on the teen choice awards, and there she is. she's 16 and she's straddling a pole. what do you think of that? call in, 1-877-tell-hln. >>> welcome back. happening right now, this is in santa clara, california, bay area, near san francisco, we've got live pictures. imagine this, a roller coaster, rescues under way right now. this is at the california's great america theme park in santa clara. there you see, fire department using cherry pickers to get people out of there. what we have, 32 people stuck midair on this roller coaster called invertigo. they are dangling there. there are no injuries, but they are dangling there, 50 stories up. in the back of your mind, you're hoping it never happens. roller coaster stuck, midair, thankfully, nobody hurt. but quite a scare for these people. 32 people up 50 feet in the air. we'll keep you posted. looks like things are going well as they get those folks off that ride. wow. >>> now this. miley cyrus, she's a huge role model to a lot of young gir
will be prohibited from denying coverage because of a person's medical history, period. >> reporter: in montana last night, folks who were dropped by their insurance company after they got sick. >> we are held hostage at any given moment by health insurance companies that deny coverage or drop coverage. >> reporter: and here in grand junction, it's about ow premiums are going up. >> in the past few year, premiums have nearly doubled. >> reporter: and mr. obama is getting some help from political allies, a coalition that includes some strange bed foale will hes that include drug company, unions and hospitals, launched a $12 million ad campaign in 130er9 of reform. >> so what does health insurance reform really mean? >> reporter: lester, the president overnight actually in phoenix where tomorrow it's all about vacation. the family will tour the grand can john. lester? >> chuck todd this evening, thank you. we're joined for more from washington with david gregory. the story line is the president trying to take back the message, but does the white house at least privately take some responsibility for lo
mannered. >> reporter: saying angel and starlet were huge fans of hannah montana saying jaycee dreamed of becoming a model. always clean and well-dressed. no hint of the tragic reality. investigators have expanded the crime scene at phillip garrido's home and brought cadaver dogs to search the property next door. authorities are looking into whether garrido could be connected to a string of murders during the 1990s. >> we we also know is that phillip garrido had access to that property. he used that property and it looks like he lived on that property's in a shed. >> reporter: as we scoured the hometown looking for clues we found this in a hardware store. the name phil g. on a card. on august 17th this receipt shows garrido bought a pressure switch and left a $2 donation to the children's miracle network. as your jaycee dugard, we aunds she is with her kids and mom and couple our relatives surrounded by law enforcement officers and psychologists helping he reunite with her family. we're told she has been feeling some guilt over bonding with her captor here. phillip garrido for so long,
goes back on the road tomorrow to talk about health care. he will be in belgrade, montana, to talk about his plan to overhaul the nation's health- care system. on saturday, the first family plans to spend part of the day in yellowstone. afterward, president obama has to another forum in grand junction, colorado. white house officials have said that the trip is partly aimed at encouraging people to visit national parks, as well as to get out the message on health care. this morning, "washington journal" asked to be worse if the message is indeed getting out. we will show you as much as we can -- a view is if the message is indeed getting out. we will show you as much as we can. have the health care protests changed your mind? beginning with a call from sun city, fla. on the independent line. what is your thinking as an independent? caller: thanks for taking my call. it has changed my mind a bit. i think the american people would benefit by being a self- insured group, and i think it is nice that obama it is given a choice. what i would like to impress everyone with and this is very
captor's printing business. her daughters, the two girls, adored hannah montana. we will take your calls. 1-877-tell-hln. steve rogers, a lieutenant in the new jersey police department, also with us, criminal defense attorney michelle suskawer. and dr. tarra fields. tarra, a lot of this is going to go to you. let's start with jaycee and her daughters, we saw the pictures. living in filth. we know she had access to a computer. people were trying to understand why at some point doesn't she run, ask for help, something? >> well, the reason is she may have felt there was a greater threat if she did do that. she may have decided and had been told in many different ways as a young child because remember she was a child when she was abducted that the safest thing for her is not to do anything. this man was probably a paranoid schizophrenic, but probably brilliant as sex offenders and cult leaders are. may have convinced her her family encouraged him to take her. maybe she is going to die or something is going to happen to her. intermittent reinforcement, love and it isn't around and then reinfo
deep in a trout stream in montana, as well. amin, are we reading too much of the body language here? is. >> clearly, bernanke was a bush appointee. obama was not expected early on to reappoint him, but his performance and popularity on wall street really drove the president's decision mere. and we're getting a little bit more detail on how this all went down. i'm told by an administration source they actually decided a couple weeks ago to do this in late august, and that the president offered this job to ben bernanke just the president, tim geithner and bernanke in the white house together on wednesday last week at about 8:00 p.m. at night. so they have known for a little while they were going to do it. and my question is why the head fake when they told us they weren't going to make any news yesterday. >> and is that because conspiracy theorist in me says maybe that's because the deficit numbers were going to come out today, as well, and maybe that really -- this event pushes that aside and people weren't necessarily focused on the $9 trillion deficit. >> yeah, you've got to get out yo
will believe that unless and until we're told that is not the case. >> montana democrat max baucus is leading the senate finance committee negotiations which will continue tomorrow, but if those talks bake down, senate democratic leader say they will go it alone and thwart any g.o.p. mill buster with a maneuver that would allow them to vote with a 51% majority. a quinnipiack poll taken before the intense national town hall debates over healthcare underscored the risks of bipartisanship and 59% said they disagreed with a democratic-only healthcare solution, including 53% of democrats an 63% of independents. fox caught up in eye with with charles grassley. >> i wish the white house would take a deep breath and pause. we're talking about healthcare. that's life or death, affecting every american. we're talking about 1/6 of the economy. it ought to be broad based. it shouldn't be partisan. >> another g.o.p. negotiator, mike enzy of wyoming, lasted the so-called public option for healthcare reform, one that the g.o.p. embraces an liberals covet. monopolies never improve efficiency, and a governmen
to be in montana and colorado. is montana today? because i think he is going to get some friction there. i think that he welcomes it. he has got to also worry about his accuracy because, number one, saying that he is going to lean out medicare and cut out waste, that's going to save enough money to pay for the plan is wrong. saying you are not going to tax anyone over $250,000 that's wrong. plans currently constituted in the house and they are not going to be -- they are not going to add up and be deficit neutral. dari: you know, i think one of the other, perhaps even a greater concern for obama is something that he also said yesterday. he almost kind of put his foot in his own mouth because he probably wanted to take it back once it came out of his mouth. he cited the post office as having problems. but u.p.s. and fedex is doing rather well. obviously the post office is government-run. which leads a lot of people to say well, if the post office is suffering, and it's government-run why in the world would we want government to run health care? i'm sure he regretted saying that because he kind of
? >> of course. i like my life. >> in montana and colorado, those states were presidential battlegrounds. now they are the front lines for health care reform. >> thanks so much. we have seep and heard the anger and frustration. we have heard the insults being thrown around. but through all the shouting, is the message getting through? does the president have to explain that he won't pull the plug on grandma? that is what he was saying yesterday. our panel of experts weighs in. >> and a u.s. army private under arrest this morning accused of being a krablgt killer. the 18-year-old soldier is one of three men charged with murdering a cartel member who was also a dea informant. we are live in dallas this morning. what makes this so shocking, ed, is that this fellow was allegedly working for a cartel on the mexican side of the border but the hit was on the american side of the border. >> a chilling example of the power, influence, and reach of the mexican drug cartel. there is a growing concern that the reach might be beginning to corrupt u.s. officials, authorities,or people working along the bor
. they were polite and well mannered. >> reporter: she says they were huge fans of hannah montana. jaycee wanted to be a model. always clean and well dressed. no hint of the tragic reality. investigators have expanding the crime scene at garrido's home, bringing in cadaver dogs to search the property next door. they're looking at whether he could be connected to a string of murders. >> what we also know is garrido had access to the property. used the property and looks like he lived on the property in the shed. >> reporter: as we scoured the hometown looking for clues, we found this in a hardware store. the name phil g. on a donation card. he bought a pressure switch and laeft $2 donation to the children's miracle network. and what is amazing is we have talked to people throughout the weekend here. it is just how openly garrido seemed to live, especially with the two daughters. we have heard countless stories of him seen around town with his two daughters in tow. >> so basically hiding in plain view. refresh the viewers. how were they ultimately found out? how did police ultimately realiz
to campaign in. but in montana, in north dakota, in states like that, that money goes a long, long way. so it's a lot cheaper to buy those senators, and those senators are more than happy to make that money because it sort of frees them from the responsibility or the chore of having to raise money from actual average, regular americans. it's easier to get that $5,000 check or that pac money than it is to ask some regular american for a $20 contribution. >> so what do we do about this now? >> well, i mean, we're going to have to keep fighting the way we're fighting it. it's a propaganda war in a lot of ways. i mean, you have the insurance companies doing these -- these astroturf protests trying to sort of create this impression that this is a broad american mandate against health care reform. we see the polls. we see the numbers. it's obviously not true. americans want reform. they want it desperately. and i think we need to keep talking about it and keep pushing and keep calling and writing legislators and reminding them that they made a campaign promise to support and to reform the system, t
to some agreement. >> besides the town hall, tomorrow, what else is he doing in montana? recreationally that you can --? >> i hope we'll be enjoying big sky country, but i don't have anything to announce. >> doing what? hiking? fishing? >> i don't have any announcement on that today. >> any coverage? >> probably not. >> whatever it is -- >> at least i can lead on that side of it. >> whatever it is, we will see it, is that what you are saying? >> robert, i want to follow up on what chuck was asking about senator grassley. so he's the top senator on the senate finance committee. the president has talked to him, the president wants a bipartisan bill, and yet senator grassley came out and said, no public plan option, no way, no how, he won't vote for a bill on it. and yesterday in a chance to clarify this death penalty thing, instead he jumped on it and people -- death panel, sorry. he said people have a right to be afraid of it. so can you still count, seriously, chuck grassley as an ally in getting your health care bill passed? >> i still think there is the possibility of getting bipartis
. senator max bachus of montana, good evening, senator. so you're supposed to be negotiating all this out with the republicans and the hesitant democrats to gain bipartisanship with a wholly owned subsidiary of the health sector. bipartisanship that will get you what? a total of no votes? and your price has been, let's see, $414,000 in donations from hospitals, $667,000 in donations from insurance companies, just over a million from big pharma, $1.2 00,000 from nursing homes. when you think of getting $237,000 in campaign contributions from nursing homes, senator baucus, do you ever think about whether they subtract that amount of money evenly from all the patients suffering and dying in the lousy ones or just a few of the lousy ones? so much for senator baucus. sadly, this list could go on almost all night, too. i could ask blue dog congressman democrat john tanner, tennessee, if since he has gotten $215,000 from hospitals over the years if i and the appropriate number of my friends were willing to make it $216,000 if we could buy his vote or would there still have to be an auction? we c
parties. the president again met with senator baucus on friday in montana. they discussed the progress being made between democrats and republicans on the finance committee. that's our focus. >> senator grassley this morning talking about broad-based support for health care legislation that so far, no one has developed that kind of support. neither in congress nor at the white house. that doesn't mean we should quit. it means we should keep working and put things together to get widespread support. >> the white house completely agrees with what senator grassley says there. that's why i said this morning that our preferred option is to go the route of getting all those involved that are at the table to agree to something that can be supported by both parties. i can't speak to what republicans will ultimately end up doing. the president doesn't have control over every person's vote on this. he can and will continue to work to try to get agreement on both sides of the aisle on this. the president believes this issue is far too important to not try. to walk away from a perfect opportunity
, didn't quite come up in the montana one. i think he's going to create problems with people who work in the postal service who are worried they're going to have to do a whole bunch of lay-offs and are going to be shutting down a bunch of mini offices. the point is well taken. >> i heard some horrific number in terms of what they're in the hole. in the billions of dollars. >> reporter: absolutely. >> chuck, we'll talk to you again. it's early where you are, like 5:17 in the morning. >> you know, arizona has this weird decision where half the year on pacific time, half the time on -- >> just go get coffee. wherever you are. i'll talk to you next hour. >> fair enough. >>> almost a dozen wildfires continue to rage across california. the most troublesome of those fires is in santa cruz county south of san francisco. the fire there already charring more than ten square miles. michael okwu is live in swanton. you're with us all morning yesterday with talk about the fires. i understand that the firefighters did make some progress in the last 24 hours or so. >> reporter: well, there's definit
to montana on friday to hold another town hall. the president will be greeted by protestors, perhaps as many as 500 people are expected at a rally outside of the airport where the president will be holding his town hall. chuck todd is chief white house correspondent on top of the white house strategy and all this. what is the view of the white house? do they feel like they're somehow being able to get their message out or fear they're being drowned out by all the chaos? >> the answer to both questions is yes. that is why you saw the president yesterday at this town hall spend as much time saying what the plan wasn't going to do and what was not in the plan as he did pushing the plan. so, i think they realized they're on two tracks. the actual debate about health care policy is not taking place at town halls. this debate is taking place still in the gang of six with max baucus, bradley, those guys in the senate with congressional democratic leaders. but that isn't what the public is see. now there's a public debate which has morphed into a part of a cult, a red versus blue culture wars. i fee
again for this weekend for two town hall meetings, first on friday in bolton, montana, then saturday in grand junction, colorado. wolf? >> he's going to be busy at both those meetings and other stops, as well. thanks very much, dan lothian. jack cafferty has "the cafferty file." jack? >>> there is another view of this, of course. when it comes to town hall meetings, the democrats might want to rethink their strategy. arlen specter and claire mccaskill are the latest to be drowned out by protesters. one woman in missouri told mccaskill, quote, if they don't let us vent our frustrations out, they will have a revolution, unquote. protesters at arlen specter's meeting said they think the obama administration is going too far with health care reform. one woman shouted out, quote, this is about dismantling this country. specter said he thinks the people proetsdsing are, quote, not necessarily representative of america, but he thinks they should be heard. president obama and the democrats seem to face an increasingly uphill battle with selling health care reform to a skeptical public. peopl
you. >>> president obama getting ready for round two of the road show in colorado and montana. the debate is growing more passionate. arlen specter facing tough questions in a town hall meeting yesterday. hundreds of people in hagerstown, maryland booed and said just say no. charles grassley got an earful too in iowa. >> the power of life -- >> not going to do anything that's going to nationalize health insurance -- or nationalize health care in america. i don't intend to do anything to allow government bureaucrats to get between you and your doctor. >> senator, please forgive my teleprompter here. i've heard your recent rhetoric about how we want the same thing as obama and health care reform. i disagree on every level. there is nothing in that bill that i would agree to and we have to stop giving ground. >> government isn't the answer, it's a cancer. >> right now, as dan lothian reports, the white house is working hard to stay on message. >> you don't know. you don't know. >> 74 going to be written off because they have cancer. >> why don't they take the health care being fo
heads to new hampshire for a town hall meeting on health care, later montana, home of senator baucus, a key democrat trying to negotiate a deal on health care reform. >> thank you so much. in the piece you heard david scott prom the doctor who spoke in the town hall forum if he wanted a meeting he could have one. both men got a chance to have their say last night on newsroom. >> these individuals have a right to come and express their opinion but this must be done in a very deliberate manner. this is a very complex issue. i have a health care meeting. i have a health care event every year. this was something that was orchestrated. this gentleman came there to hijack this meeting that was not about health care, and that's why i was very concerned. >> i want to talk about health care. i feel like we really need to stop doing all these distractions. this is a democracy and we need to be able to come together as adults and people with ideas and to be able to express our ideas back and forth. that's how a democracy is supposed to work. coming in and screaming and hollering and being strup
snow, maine, grassley, iowa and senator baucus out of montana coming into this conversation. from washington, d.c., charlie book and msnbc political analyst. lynn sweet is also here. lynn, is this too -- are we reading too much into who these people are in the states that they represent? or is it an appropriate anxiety that this much power resides in this particular context? >> may i refer to the federalist papers for the answer here, dylan? >> please do, please do. yes, please. >> they talked about something called the tyranny of the majority. one of the reasons we have senators, two from each state, which was a debate of the founding of our nation whether big states should have more representation, i think is for situations like this. there are so many checks and balances. there are so many ways to go. you used the word conference this morning which most people don't know but in the end both chambers have to agree. for the moment at this shot in time these people have a lot of power and soon lose it once these measures advance. right now, yes, they have inordinate amount of powe

"got one that said, i think the question would be better posed who are you more afraid of the health insurance companies or its government. >> i think the poll is on that. >> julie: we'll be talking to scott rasmussen about what americans will be thinking about right now. >> trace: it's considering taking over such a personal issue of our life. it's very scary. >> gregg: police making an arrest in a frightening and bizarre attack on the mayor. tom barrett recovering in the hospital he was beaten with a metal pipe. he was attacked last night as he was leaving wisconsin state fair with his family. the mayor had just come to the aid of a woman when she was attacked by the pipe wielding sus

message on health care reform to a meeting in colorado. another town hall. he left montana, then went to grand junction, colorado and doing something his critics said he need today do to try to help to sell health care more effectively, trying to invoke passion and make this about him and this is exactly what he did yesterday. taste a listen. >> i just lost my grandmother last year, i know what it's like to watch somebody you love who is aging deteriorate and have to struggle with that. the notion that somehow i ran for public office or members of congress are in this so that they can go around pulling the plug on grandma? i mean, when you start making arguments like that, that's simply dishonest. >> of course, there, that's all reference to the end of life counsel, which became so controversial, they took it from the bill. i think it's effective, i think it's effective when the president reminds people that he watched his loved one die and so many of us have. >> yes, his grandmother 86 years old. died two days before the election, died of cancer on november the 2nd, but it did bring

: tomorrow that will be billy ray cyrus. brian: really? steve: hannah montana's dad is going to be on the program. meanwhile, a headline that says "firms with obama ties profit from the health push." it talks about how the health care overhaul is a financial windfall to a couple of democrat consulting firms closely connected to the president and a couple of his top advisors. $24 million worth of ads are being bought and put on tv. the two firms hired, one is gmmb which worked for barack obama during the 2008 campaign, and also akpd. the a stands for axelrod started by david axelrod. of course, he has separated himself from the company. but there are some who are going, now, wait a minute, this seems a little too cozy. the white house denies that mr. axlerod is making any money from it. gretchen: they do still owe him # million from the stock sale. they're going to be making those payments over the next couple of years. but interestingly enough, at that firm that he created, his son still works there. and no surprise that the two top advisors to obama, these are their former j
